St. Ignatius downs Menlo

Paul Toboni scored 16 points, including 12 in the pivotal second half, and Alex Brown added 14 to lead the St. Ignatius boys’ basketball team past cold-shooting Menlo in non-league play.

The Wildcats (5-1) outscored the Knights 36-25 in the second half, holding Menlo to just seven second-half field goals in winning their fourth straight contest.

Neither team found much of an offensive rhythm in the first half. But the Wildcats were buoyed by center Vince Legarza’s fadeaway jump shot with less than two seconds in the second quarter, putting them up 19-16 heading into the break.

Brown and Toboni were the catalysts in the second half, combing for 17 points after the break, including five straight by Toboni after Menlo (5-2) pulled within 32-25 early in the fourth quarter.

“We floated around in the first half a little bit,” said Wildcats coach Tim Reardon. “We got into their passing lanes in the second half a lot better and were able to create some steals and get some easy buckets on the other end.”

St. Ignatius 55, Menlo 41
